Once you enroll into their plan (the cheapest is the BIS for RMB98/108 or BEs can run you from RMB189/289/389/489/589...889 depends on the data volumn you anticipate), you can have the full BB service on you phone. I now changed to a 9800 Torch and back to where I was when in Canada.
Any idea if China Mobile has a prepaid SIM which supports BB services? My last visit to Shanghai, I couldn't get anyone at the China Mobile store to suggest a BB prepaid SIM. Ended up buying a normal card.
